Anthropogenic Hazards. These are hazards that occur as a result of human interaction with the environment. They include Technological Hazards, which occur due to exposure to hazardous substances, such as radon, mercury, asbestos fibers, and coal also include other hazards that have formed only through human interaction, such as acid rain, and contamination of the atmosphere ~sanelson/Natural_Disasters/ In order to study the accuracy of results, geological hazards recorded during the implementation of excavation operations were used. Studies obtained from the comparison of observed and predicted results indicate the high accuracy of HSA in the assessment and prediction of geological risks in the tunnelling
Abstract. The study of the history of volcanic activity over a long period of time (several years as a minimum), and the trends in the dynamics of eruptive activity and production rate, as well as the determination of the characteristic features of the present period of the life of a volcano are of decisive significance for long-term prediction of volcanic :// is a platform for academics to share research ://

This knowledge has led to improvements in prediction capability, procedures for issue and dissemination of warnings, and Earthquake Hazards.
Earthquakes can be hazardous to humans and property in a variety of ways. Earthquake hazards arise from a combination of factors such as the size of the earthquake, distance to the epicenter, the underlying material and geologic structures, and building :// /chapter/outcome-earthquake-hazards-and-prediction.
Geochemical and mineral-related hazards such as arsenic and radionuclides are addressed in the Geology and Health Program.

PREDICTED AND ACTUAL PATH OF HURRICANE HUGO The track of Hurricane Hugo on Septemwas more westerly than expected because the storm came ashore faster and at greater intensity than had been forecast. Although prediction capabilities for meteorological hazards have increased in recent decades, further research and modernization of weather prediction facilities should Prediction.
The prediction of natural hazards such as storms and hurricanes has long been a central theme in satellite remote sensing. The first earth observation satellites were launched specifically to monitor weather phenomena in the ’s. Today, weather satellites like GOES provide imagery of storm and hurricane tracks in North America Selected publications about earthquakes In plain language.
